Yayyy! The second film, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc II – The Battle for Doldrey is off, have you seen it? Sound off in the comments, but only after you see what I got for you. As you already know, probably, the next Berserk film, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc III – Descent, was slated to be released this fall, but has been moved to January 2013.
This new poster offers a first look at the third and final part of the Berserk Golden Age trilogy of Studio 4°C’s adaptation of Kentarou Miura‘s medieval-horror-action manga. These posters will be appearing in Japanese movie theaters starting August 25th, so here, look at that foreboding eclipse:
He trusts no one, only his sword. He doesn’t have a place to call home. The lone mercenary Guts travels the land where a hundred-year-old war is taking place. His ferocity and ability to take down enemies attracts the attention of Griffith, the leader of a group of mercenaries called “The Band of the Hawk.”
Griffith desires Guts’s power to help him achieve his goals. He succeeds in recruiting Guts by challenging and winning a duel with him. As the Band of the Hawk fight together and their bond as a unit is strengthened, Griffith and Guts’s bond deepens even more. Thanks to their continued success on the battlefield, Griffith achieves the first step in fulfilling his goal: his band of mercenaries becomes a full-fledged army within the Midland Kingdom. Despite all their success, Guts begins to question his reasons for fighting for Griffith’s dream. Unknown to Guts, this unyielding dream is about to bestow a horrible fate on them both.
The first movie in the trilogy, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I – The Egg of the King will be released in America on November 27th, 2012.
